India sealed the series against Bangladesh in the second One-Day International (ODI) match of the three-match series, after defending the lowest total in history of the game. The 2011 World Cup champions will be now aiming to go for the kill and register 3-0 rout. For India, the only cause of concern will be the performance of their middle-order batsmen Ambati Rayudu and Cheteshwar Pujara. While Rayudu was unbeaten during the first match, Pujara has been dismissed cheaply for scores of 0 and 11 in both matches although he suffered in the first one due to an umpiring error. With the series in the pocket, it will be interesting to see whether skipper Raina and coach Duncan Fletcher experiments in the middle-order.

Time is running out for Cheteshwar Pujara in ODIs. Not the quickest of fielders, Pujara has not managed a 20 plus score in the five ODIs he has played so far. Rayudu, on his part, has never looked in control in the 12 ODIs he has played. A strike-rate of less than 70 is considered below par from a specialist willow wielder. In such a scenario, the likes of Kedar Jadhav and Manoj Tiwary might get a go in the middle-order. However, the Indian teams, over the years, have had a knack of sticking to winning combinations even after a particular series has been clinched.
